I received my Ph.D. in the Organization Studies, Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2017). After completing my post-doctoral stays in Jerusalem, Berlin and Oxford, I am coming back to the Department of Asian Studies as the Lady Davis Fellow.

I work on and teach about South Korea's economic and cultural miracles. I co-organized several international conferences on modern Korea and published several articles and book chapters including the recent paper in International Journal of Communication on the relations between popular culture, Korea Day and Korean Studies at the Hebrew University (2019).


In the Department of Asian Studies I managed two combined programs with Business Administration and International Relations coordinating guest-seminars with businessmen, diplomats, and academics - Forum of East Asian Economies and Asia in International Arena.
